    Awe struck, and that's putting it mildly. I'm very impressed. Michael Bay is amazing.

    Amazingly awesome.

    That's the kind of movie that I like, explosive, loud and fun.

    Other than Ravage having one eye (I can understand why, doesn't mean they couldn't have at least given him two), the trailer kicked ass. The R8 bot's bit was awesome, and the two construticons (I'm 99% sure that the one smashing the helicopters wasn't the one Prime was fighting) were HUGE!

    EDIT: rewatched it again, the constructicon blowing up the copters is the same one Prime is fighting. Just had to pay better attention to detail.

    Looks really promising. I admit that I don't know much about the ROTF storyline, but, the action looks exciting. The last movie I watched in a theatre was TF1, and, I assume, the next movie I'll see in a theatre will be ROTF.

    On the contrary, I don't understand the logic of Ravage having only 1 eye when he's suppose to be a hunter. Limited field of view?

    I think it's part of the animator's attempt to keep the decepticons looking more alien in appearance.

    But they also preach about practically and realism. Ravage should have two eyes, not just for aesthetic purposes.

    That was one hell of a teaser trailer. Bay has certainly gotten a good handle on the tone and feel of the transformers, if not always the characterization and mythos (although the first film, given that it had to introduce the whole idea of massive transforming robots in a believable way, didn’t leave much time free for any of that).

    From the look of the teaser trailer, we’ll be getting lots of giant fcuknig robot action this time around, if the remains of the bridge smashed through by the wheeled Constructicon is any indication. Of note, for me, was the car’s transformation sequence and the running leading up to that, as well as Prime jumping on the rampaging Constructicon. The robots in general seem more fluid in motion than before.

    I am detecting copious quantities of WIN, here.

    I feel disappointed already and all we have is a teaser trailer. For every cool moment of hey Ravage seems to have been tweeked a good bit since the leak there was something to make me cringe.

    Not a big fan of short attention span trailers so maybe that has colored the old opinion.

    I guess I should hold out some hope. It did seem like we got a good bit of Decepticons in the trailer so maybe they can make up for the poor Decepticon showing in the first movie.

    Looks good so far, I'm looking forward to the hi-def Quicktime version so I can go frame by frame.

    I can't wait to see this movie. Even my girlfriend would like it. Devestator will be huge. Can't wait also to see the final toys.

    However. If the 3 bots are indeed Arcee is it then Barricade who they are chasing? Wasn't he a cop car?

    Nice, damn nice. The more focus on the Bots the happier I'll be with the final film. Still for a teaser this looks quite insane and I love that!

    I love B-cade's (or whomever the Audi is) tumble-&-run transformation. Hope there's tons more "action only a transformer can do" throughout the movie.

    Also cool to see that Prime isn't just in the Decepticons faces', is is literally ON their faces. The combined form of Devastator is going to be gargantuan!

    That one shot of Sam pinned down reminds me so much of the same sort of shot with him from the first film on the car hood. Poor kid, always almost getting crushed to death.
